Salon quality nails without the salon quality small talk!
Ah yes, it’s already time for another holiday. I love Christmas the most, and Valentine’s Day and New Year’s both have their perks, but Easter holds a special place in my
heart. Fluffy bunnies, truckloads of chocolate, and so much pastel everywhere! It’s
the only time of year when I know I can go to any store and find enough washed
out colours and cute little ornaments to instantly clean out my savings.
I’ve been working on my nail-painting skills, and while I’m
still not even close to expert level, I have
become an expert at finding nail art that’s easy enough for me to do.
Cute and simple, the Easter egg nail makes so much sense it’s
almost crazy that I haven’t done it until now. All you need is a white nail art
pen (or multiple colours of your choosing), a pastel nail colour or two, and a
First off, paint your nails. You can do them all one colour, or
try a mix. I wanted to keep things chic and minimal, so I went with American
Apparel’s Office, a milky mint.
Once your nails are completely dry, it’s time to add the
details with your nail art pen (or polish and tiny brush). I used a white pen
and a pink pen, both Sally Hansen, and got to decorating.
With a steady hand, make some simple little Easter egg details
on each nail, like zig-zags, polka dots and squiggly lines.
Finally, when everything is dry, seal in the art with a
topcoat, and you’re done!
Will you be doing Easter-inspired nails this weekend? Perhaps
just a pastel color?
